Private Pilates Apparatus Sessions
"In 10 sessions you will feel the difference,
in 20 you will see the difference and
in 30 you will have a whole new body."
A quote from Joseph H. Pilates, the creator of the Pilates method.
One to one gives you the ability to try new exercises in a safe and constructive way.
I would recommend the private sessions as you can target specific area you want to work on. Also opportunity there to learn correct technique so that if you have an injury you don’t irritate it or make it worse. What I like most is the assurance that I’m doing the exercises correctly with clear instructions and demonstration and not further injuring myself. As a result of these sessions, my shoulder and neck is a lot loser and range of mobility has improved. My legs have become more toned and my core is becoming stronger.
Emma is great at her job
Before I signed up I was worried about being unfit and not being able to use the machines. But as a result of the sessions I have toned up and felt better for doing the stretches and exercises on the machines.
What I liked most was learning to do the movements correctly and getting more out of the exercises having the one to one lesson.
I would recommend the Private sessions. Emma is great at her job and explaining the different exercises and the benefits of each movement and the part of the body they work on.
I can't recommend Emma's reformer package highly enough.
I got better results with my body shape and more quickly than anything I have done before. I've been going to the gym for years, spinning, step, boxercise, circuits etc. The reformer sessions made a better difference to my body but it felt like less effort than other things I've tried.
Emma's knowledge and instruction is excellent. She's able to describe the movements in a way that just clicks with me so I get the best out of them. Emma also suits the session to push me to the right level. The sessions are always different so you never feel like you're doing the same thing again and again and the hour session flies by.
I've had problems with my lower back and have found that the improvements to my core from the reformer has helped my back hugely. Emma takes time to get to know you so she caters the sessions around your abilities. I think it would be a great way to get back into shape after any kind of injury as Emma will take time to understand and cater the session exactly for you.
I really love the sessions and on top of that I can see the results. Emma is a talented and very knowledgeable instructor.
I’m much happier with my body now
Before signing up, my main reservation was the one to one aspect. I had been to classes and done work outs on my own, and found the idea of having someone watch my every move a bit daunting. Also the reformer looked terrifying in pictures.
Since beginning, my body has completely changed shape. I have lost weight in places that I would have always struggled with. I have also built muscle and strength in areas that I found difficult to train before like arms and my bum, this training allows me to focus on particular goals and really work each area accurately.
The one to one sessions I found hugely beneficial to building my own confidence with work outs. It helps you to become aware of different areas and muscle groups, and Emma is great at encouraging you to really push yourself! It’s completely personalised to my goals and my capabilities which I found of greater benefit than doing very generalised work out plans.
I would highly recommend private apparatus sessions. The workouts are personal, fun and are great for getting to know the correct method for exercising and realising where you’ve been going wrong before.
These sessions have improved my over all fitness, I’m much happier with my body now and the calming a friendly training environment has meant that I’ve learnt to enjoy exercise again!
Pilates Personal Training on the Reformer now available!
Reformer Pilates is Pilates on a Reformer machine and is the most effective piece of kit in the entire Pilates repertoire. Originally termed the “apparatus” by its creator Joseph Pilates. The Reformer is a spring based piece of equipment that provides both resistance and support to further increase the development of flexibility, body control and core strength. The Reformer’s resistance (which can be changed depending on the exercise and depending on the individual using the machine) allows you to set it up to suit your body perfectly, meaning that all the work you do on it will be extremely effective, providing enough resistance to build strong bones and muscles, building strength while increasing flexibility.
We build total body strength by pushing and pulling with legs or arms against the resistance of the springs, carriage, and body weight. The reformer allows full-range of motion which is essential for increasing flexibility while also training the muscles using eccentric contractions. This is when a muscle lengthens as it resists a force. That is one of the keys to achieving flexibility and strength throughout your full range of motion of motion.
During your initial session, we will talk through your objectives such as weight loss, increased strength and flexibility or simply wanting to feel fitter and healthier. Your training programme will be continually tailored to your specific needs and goals to get the best possible result for you.
At each session, I watch your form and provide objective feedback on performance and give hands-on instruction. I will challenge you to work through your barriers but I will keep it fun and interesting!
